Normal is Boring

Weird is interesting. Life should be eventful. If nothing ever happened, or rather if the same things happened every day, we'd die of boredom. I know from a guy who used to do paintings that it's much more interesting and challenging to paint old or ugly people than it is to paint regular people. All the wrinkles and abnormalities make the final product much more attractive.

It's the same thing with life.

"A person who's led a perfect life will never have any cool stories to tell."
- Ralph van den Berg

The difficulties that we face, the problems that lie in our path, are all ways to test you and to make you a stronger, better, and more experienced person. We never hear anybody get excited when they tell us what they've done that day if it's just waking up in the morning, having breakfast, taking a shower and going to class/work. Exceptions would be if that person never attends classes, is unemployed, never takes a shower, or doesn't usually wake up in the mornings. That means something not normal just happened, and it becomes interesting.

Here's also a reason not to have regrets. Things happened in the past, and you can't change it. You should be thankful for the experiences. The stories about all the bad stuff that's happened to you, or the success stories are the ones that will entertain your friends!

"'normal' is a setting on a clothesdryer." there's no such thing as normal.

In a sense, when someone calls you weird or a freak, you should take it as a compliment. Imagine someone calling you "normal"... that's just something I don't like.
